Overheard on taxicab company radio whilst riding in a cab in Las Vegas:



"Please someone pick up three young ladies at X Shopping Center. Three

young ladies, middle-aged, will be standing outside waving. . . . Three young

black ladies."



Obviously some pretty complex sociolinguistics going on here.
